2011 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience, Optogenetics, Prefrontal cortex, Parvalbumin and Inhibitory postsynaptic potential. His Neuroscience research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Schizophrenia and Autism. His research on Optogenetics often connects related areas such as Plateau potentials.
His Prefrontal cortex research includes themes of NMDA receptor, Dopamine receptor D2, Quinpirole, Stimulation and Sulpiride. His Parvalbumin study combines topics in areas such as Neocortex, Cerebral cortex, MAFB and Excitatory postsynaptic potential. Vikaas S. Sohal combines subjects such as Receptor, GABAA receptor, Intracellular and Epilepsy with his study of Inhibitory postsynaptic potential.
His main research concerns Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Optogenetics, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Chemistry. Many of his studies on Neuroscience apply to Autism as well. His Autism research focuses on subjects like Neuron, which are linked to Calcium imaging.
His research in Prefrontal cortex focuses on subjects like Hippocampus, which are connected to Hippocampal formation. His work on Channelrhodopsin as part of his general Optogenetics study is frequently connected to Spike, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Inhibitory postsynaptic potential research focuses on Schizophrenia and how it connects with Cognitive flexibility.
Neuroscience, Prefrontal cortex, Hippocampal formation, Autism and Gene are his primary areas of study. His Neuroscience study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Artificial neural network and GCaMP. His Prefrontal cortex research is within the category of Cognition.
His Hippocampal formation research includes elements of Biological neural network, Hippocampus and Anxiety. His Autism research includes themes of Interneuron and Transplantation. As part of one scientific family, Vikaas S. Sohal deals mainly with the area of Optogenetics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Brain state, and often Parvalbumin.
Vikaas S. Sohal spends much of his time researching Neuroscience, Extramural, Optogenetics, Hippocampal formation and Prefrontal cortex. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Elevated plus maze and Traumatic brain injury. His Extramural investigation overlaps with other disciplines such as Parvalbumin, Brain state, Stimulation, Salience and Biological neural network.
The concepts of his Optogenetics study are interwoven with issues in Neuropathic pain, Electrophysiology, Chronic pain, Behavioral adaptation and Amygdala. The Hippocampal formation study combines topics in areas such as Balance, Excitation inhibition, Neuronal circuits, Autism and Hippocampus. Prefrontal cortex is a subfield of Cognition that Vikaas S. Sohal investigates.
